I have just completed adding a high altitude shorting plug to my 85 K. As many do, I attached it through a dash switch so that it shorts across when the switch is flipped on.
I'm asking what would be "normal" at sea level when the switch is engaged? Should there be any noticeable change?

Since I can't just go running off to a place above 4000 feet to test, How do I verify that this is operating properly while at sea level?
As I said, Currently, turning on or off makes no change that I can see hear.

I do know that my last trip to 7000 feet the bike idled slowly and seemed to have less overall power running in the stock configuration.

I'm leaving next month for a trip into the Sierras and I'd like to see some effectiveness from this installation.

Regards, Ibj...
